KARNATAKA

Ranganathittu sanctuary closed for visitors

The Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary was closed for visitors from Thursday in anticipation of water discharge from the Krishnaraja Sagar as the reservoir has been getting heavy inflow from the last few days following heavy rain in Kodagu.

Another reason for the early closure of the tourist attraction, ahead of water discharge into the river, is poor footfall to the site since its reopening, in view of increase in COVID-19 cases in the region.

Until further orders

Deputy Conservator of Forests Alexander told The Hindu that the sanctuary and boating at Srirangapatna was closed from Thursday until further orders.
